Pediatric Airway: Cry, Stridor and Cough

by Jeno Hirschberg (Editor), Tamas Szende (Editor), Peter J. Koltai (Editor)

The result of 45 years’ study of pediatric laryngology, phoniatrics, and bronchology, this book describes 42 different pathological sounds – occurring in different combinations – in 54 different pathological conditions. Uniquely, while recognizing the indispensability of conventional investigation methods – endoscopy, radiology, MRI – the Editors demonstrate the value of perceptive-auditive evaluation and objective acoustic analysis as a complimentary diagnostic tool. With an accompanying DVD, they visually – through spectograms, endoscopic photos, and radiologic or MRI pictures – and audibly demonstrate the acoustic characteristics of the pathological sound phenomena, the different irregular or unusual sounds occurring in, and the characteristic of each respiratory or neuro-developmental disease and disorder. Their coverage of the latest therapeutic options for each disease or disorder renders this book a virtual guide to every aspect of pediatric laryngology. Throughout, the editors demonstrate the value of this complimentary diagnostic and rehabilitation tool for airway obstructions and the various pathological and neuro-developmental anomalies in the pediatric population. The multidisciplinary approach has been deliberate in making the book accessible to pediatricians and speech pathologists, as well as its core audience: otolaryngology-head and neck surgeons.
